There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Final problem is that I 'got into' this to improve my laptop bluetooth ..... the AX didn't work at all and the TP Link AC1200 is little improvement over the inbuilt laptop. I can't see the AX being an improvement. I expected whole house and garden coverage !
Total waste of time with AsrockB450, AMD Ryzen 3200G, 2667 Ram and WD NVme. Expletive !

Installed this on a new pc build with fresh install of windows 10.
One of the things I didn't realize when I bought the adapter was the PCI express card also requires a internal USB Connection - (Connection from motherboard to pci express card) It comes with the cable you will need to do this, however it may require you to disconnect another USB device on your motherboard to use this, as it did in my case.
**The internal USB connection on the motherboard is usually used to connect the USB ports on the front or top of your PC Case to the motherboard. **
The other problem I had was the drivers disc sent with the card was not readable. I tried it on 2 different PC's both would not read the disc. Not a huge problem as you can usually find better, more up-to-date drivers on the Manufacturer website.
I went over to the MSI website only to find , there is no product actually called "MSI AX905C" on the site.
I was able to find a product called the MSI Herald-AX Intel AX200NGW Wifi 6 , it appeared to be the same device, so I went for it. Sure enough , it worked.
So be aware MSI calls it the MSI Herald-AX Intel AX200NGW Wifi 6 , if you are looking for support/drivers.
After all of those little hiccups, it installed and worked well. Low latency on 5ghz and relatively good speed. Will report more if it changes, after more use.
The hardware: Basically, it's just a NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor)/M.2 to PCIe adapter, with the Intel AX200 Wifi module installed.
What I personally did for my individual use case, was to first uninstall any accompanying software associated with the Wifi card I was replacing, then making sure to remove the device from within Device Manager to ensure nothing is left behind. After powering off my system, I opened the case and removed my old Wifi card.
Hardware Installation: The product is already fully assembled for Wifi function right out of the box, installation should be a snap. First, remove one of the existing screws holding down the PCIe slot bracket next to an empty PCIe x1 slot in your case, if you haven't done so already. Next, carefully (while noting the holes on each end) connect one end of the included Internal USB Header cable to the USB pin slot on the product and the other end to an empty USB pin slot on the motherboard. Now carefully insert the product into the PCIe x1 slot noting that the notch on both the slot and on the product properly line up. Then, finally secure the screw into place on the bracket. After which, you would then run the Driver installation utility for both the Wifi and Bluetooth once your PC boots up.
FYI: If you choose to not install the Bluetooth Driver, there will be an entry in Device Manager listed as "Unknown Device". It's just the Bluetooth function that Windows somehow cannot seem to identify without the Drivers being installed. Just installing the Bluetooth Driver changes that entry to "Bluetooth" within Device Manager.
Of course make sure all other components are of speeds you want and this will handle them. I have basic 300 mbps internet and when testing had 347mbps. Using an ac3200 tri asus router. I'm happy but suspicious of test results since cable companies almost never give us max speeds but was similar on various online test from various sites.
the external antenna cable could be longer.
